Here's a twist on our normal theme of historical houses. Online auctions Rightmove.co.uk have actually compiled a list of historic, strange, and just ordinary quirky properties that came in the marketplace in 2013. Included in this tend to be genuine Scottish castles and a residence said to be troubled by the ghost of Oliver Cromwell.
Quirky / Historical Homes:
The Cromwell Ghost House – reputedly troubled by Cornwall, even though last time their ghost ended up being seen was at the 1970s. The previous Lord Protector had been believed to have checked out this medieval strengthened house on a few occasions.
Society War 2 Bunker Bungalow - Penzance, Cornwall. Yes, that's right, an authentic WWII bunker, later on changed into a partly underground 3/4 bed room household. Found nearby the popular Minack Theatre. A steal at just £275, 000.
The ‘Winnie the Pooh fulfills the Rolling Stones’ House - Cotchford Farm, Sussex, when owned by AA Milne and used as a backdrop the writer's preferred Winnie the Pooh stories. The home was later had by Brian Jones, a founder member of the Rolling Stones.
Own your personal castle:
Westbury Castle home, North Wales - a late Regency mansion in Tudor Gothic style, set in Prestatyn. Bult by the seventh Baronet of Mostyn, this home comes with its very own cycling college and abbey church.
Even if you can not manage to purchase a castle, you are able to sigh wistfully on pictures!Heritage Traveller
